The Black Creek Nature Trail begins at the Davison Township Municipal Center and joins the Abernathy Park Trail in the city of Davison. These two trails, which connect the township and city, are part of the area's efforts to encourage a healthy, active community. Trail-goers will enjoy the tree-lined, 1.6-mile route along the Black Creek to the 138-acre park. In May 2011, the Davison Arch was erected where the township and city meet on the trail and is a monument to the joint effort to create the trail.
